Diabetic thoracoabdominal neuropathy: clinical and electrodiagnostic features.

Abstract

Five diabetic patients developed upper back or abdominal pain associated with substantial weight loss in three. Electrophysiological evidence of associated thoracoabdominal somatic neuropathy was found in all cases. Signs of a generalized neuropathy were present in two patients, and four had asymmetrical proximal leg weakness. At least two have improved spontaneously. The syndrome is closely related to diabetic amyotrophy; it is probably more common than is recognized.
